There also is a tried and true children’s menu sure to delight complete with hotdogs, peanut butter and jelly, chicken fingers, grilled cheese and hamburgers. This is a kid-friendly place.

Seafood options include crabcakes, fried oysters, shrimp Wellington, steamed spiced shrimp, softshell crabs and grilled tuna. Mix seafood with lamb, chicken and filet mignon or order each separately. Appetizers are decided nightly as well as the soup de jour. Homemade she crab-soup is a mainstay.
